directive for the c.b.o. to count the people losing their health insurance because of obama care. this was something that got democratic and republican to get done in this budget which they are going to try to cap this and see is it happening and how much is it occurring. host: the house approved their 318-1109. or c.r. by 03 republicans and 115 democrats voted rest. john jon tester voted no. so now that these two measures have been passed, what happens next? guest: the c.r. goes to the president so he's able to sign this bill and make it law. host: without going to conference? guest: it's the same bill. the house passed a verlings. it was sent to the senate. they amended it and sent it back to the house. it was very schoolhouse rock of them and got it done in a way that makes seasons to most people following along. host: go ahead deal. you're on the "washington journal" with ginger of politico. >> i think it's absolutely amazing that we're going to have a discussion about keeping the government open. that should be a no brainer and it blows my mind we're actually having this dis
are not doing something. lou: senator carl levin, pushing president obama to take a hands-on approach to the removal of bashar al-assad. and as senator john mccain looking for a no-fly zone to be instituted. while calling for surgical airstrikes to help drive the bashar al-assad. the president repeated that any evidence of this weapon to use would be a game changer, as he put it. president obama defended his administraon's reluctance to use military force to quell the syrian civil war. >> when we are working with the syrians themselves, so this is not externally imposed, but rather something that is linked directly with the aspirations of the people inside of syria, it will work better. lou: the king has also said the same. inside jordan comment they are the they delivered with answer should bashar al-assad we powers. >> we need to institute a transition aquickly as possible. if the issue evercame up, all of us would have to put our heads together and fure out if that would help the balance quickly. lou: the senate in the midst of a vote. their expressions, not ours. a senate budget b
to something that i did not want to hear. that was america and president obama are ready to attack iran. i found that there could be all sorts of excuses and rationalizations and reasons that the president of israel said that. judy, this is too bellicose for my taste. >> i think that he says exactly what is on his mind. i think that a 90-year-old president who helped isael acquire its own nuclear weapons, they were reminding israel and the united states at the top agenda item for israel is making sure that iran does not process redline. i think the two men are not closer to coming to an agreement on what that definition is. lou: if you would like to respond, please. >> it is a tricky issue. the u.s. and israel have different capabilities. now, those capabilities, we don't know what is backstage between the two men. did obama say if you go independently, we will have your back, i am not just saying that -- but we will? did he say we will give you weapons capabilities? so you can wait a little bit longer and be patient? we do not know. but the things they want to hear, i think obama reduced
anything they want to. why we're celebrating something that is a horror like obama care is hond me. you're talking about a birthday, i'll tell you what. birthday you see this cookie, well, the cookie crumbles. see. that's what happens. because it's not worth anything. and they should turn around and get rid of it. >> we're laughing but the economy really rests on health care. 16 or 17% of the economy. if this fails this is a grand e parent by obama. if this fails we're in deep trouble. >> everybody says we have to get costs under control. we had to do something. look, i'm glad -- i'm glad you got a cake here eric. because folks on the right opposing this should help themselves to a giant piece of hypocrisy. >> the problem with health care, there is -- there is no preventive in the package. what did they do but increase my bill. >> tracy, we can talk about that. the idea of people taking individual responsibility by being called on to pay for their own health care costs -- >> hold on. >> go. >> kelly is practicing a double speak at the highest level. this is not individual responsibility
't you doing something militarily? >> reporter: before leaving israel today president obama did a little tarmac diplomacy arranging for a phone call between israeli's prime minister netanyahu and turkey's prime minister erdogan. netanyahu apologizing for the death of nine turkish citizens in 2010. >> it's in the interest of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order. >> reporter: this morning the president paid a visit to the holocaust memorial yad vashem. and the church of the nativity in bethlehem, considered by christians to be the birthplace of jesus. powerful images in the region that may also resonate with americans back home. chuck todd, nbc news, aman. >> the president's trip will be one topic of discussion on "meet the press" sunday morning as will the fight over guns in this country. new york mayor michael bloomberg and nra ceo wayne la pierre will be among david gregory's guests sunday morning here on nbc. >>> still ahead for us on a friday night, a new warning about the effectiveness of smoke alarms in millions of our homes. the
obama. we need do something about guns in this country. on o thursday, it was announced that dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban would be dropped. we learned it didn't matter that the majority of americans support the ban. the proposal couldn't make it past the u.s. senate. senate majority leader reid said he doesn't have the votes. didn't have the republican votes. he didn't have the democratic votes and no amount of public shaming could change that fact. >> quite honestly, i'm really aashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up, make a change and put a ban on these type of weapons and universal background checks. >> with the assault weapons ban out of picture for the time being, the focus is now on those universal background checks. the overwhelming majority of americans are for universal background checks. 88% of voters say they support these checks according to the latest polling from quinnipiac. as for gun owners, 85% of gun owners support background checks. late last night majority heard harry reid issued this statement, i want to be clear in order to be
of the president's credibility. u.s. standing probably has risen under president obama, but clout has fallen for the reasons i stated earlier, because of his reluctance to get involved over there. if you're the iranians and he says something like this, do you really take it it seriously at this point or is it simply barack obama saying things because he believes them himself? >> i would bet bret takes issue with the point about the standing question of the-- >> we're less popular in the arab world than we were, in much of the arab world than we were in the last year of george w. bush's presidency. >> paul: george, you mentioned jordan. is king abdullah, be the next arab ruler to fall in that region? and what would be the consequences, not just for israel, but for our own interests? >> it would be a disaster, we'd lose one of the last few moderates in the arab world and israel would lose along its longest border and-- >> how much trouble is the king in? i know there have beenprotests, price of energy and so on. >> he has a financial crisis and he's vocally opposed by the muslim brotherhood an
netanyahu well. netanyahu has some rough edges. obama's rough edges he can pretty carefully conceal. >> john, why don't we talk about something serious? >> what? >> talk about something serious. >> what do you mean? psychology plays a big role in this. >> the question is, is obama going to be persuaded to go into syria, and can netanyahu convince him to move militarily against iran. that's the big stuff. the bon ame -- >> if they get the wrong drift in the level. >> the bon ame is to get to the big stuff. >> i think that pat is exactly right, how far obama is willing to go to put his money where his mouth is on helping israel. at this point that all looked well and good but i don't see him going far enough. >> eleanor, quickly. >> this is a gap between them on syria. i think netanyahu is just as wary of entering syria, but it did not prevent the president from going over netanyahu's head and talking to the israeli public, and there is a gap between what the people want and what the leaders want. >> here's what i want to know about syria, is do they have chemical weapons. >> they've got 'em.
that oppose it. >> 45%. >> that's pretty good. when if you asked about obama care or something like that. >> republicans have learned that while these folks who were undocumented can't vote their kids who are born here are becoming citizens are voting and not voting for republicans and at the same time that poll shows the people are way ahead of the politicians on this one. they are ready for this. they want it. they want to see the system work. so they want a pragmatic approach and there's a really good political and pragmatic sweet spot we can hit if we work it the right way. >> it's a small spot. i don't think we should -- having covered the complexity there's a lot of moving pieces when people talk about what the enforcement part of it will be. hat the current pathway to citizenship will look like. that pathway will have a number of hurdles. you can build eight foot hurdles or two foot and some will run smack dab into that. >> tough, smart and fair. >> the fact that the country does immigration reform doesn't mean immigration reform is good and the fact that it's bipartisan doesn't m
the fact is if there are tax increases for obama care both sides want to get rid of. >> here is a something though, a handful of republican governors. they come to embrace the crucial programs, medicaid expansion. that includes florida governor rick scott, ohio governor john kasich, arizona governor jan brewer. but these same governors then reject the exchanges. so, are they just trying to have it both ways? >> of course they are trying to have it both ways. they are politician. nothing wrong going on with the obama care bill. tough tweak legislation. legislations are not perfect. you take a little of this, a little of that. you massage things. things sort of play itself out. i think we will have a more perfect bill. sort of like our constitution, wasn't a perfect document, we have added things to make it better. this is what is happening with obama care, make it better. you will have some time to perfect this thing. do you see governors playing politics because, of course, they want to do medicaid, worried about the voters, don't want to do exchanges it is not funded yet f it is funded, i
'll be on your way home soon too i know. thanks. >>> president obama is coming home to something he hasn't seen in four years. a budget proposal passed by the united states senate. this one was approved at 5:00 in the morning by a razor thin margin 50-49 after a marathon overnight session fittingly called vote-a-rama. the bill is expected to get knocked down when it gets to the house. >>> in georgia two teens are charged with murder. the 14 year old and 17 year old killed a 13-month-old baby boy. that little baby's mother says the boys demanded money and then shot her child strapped in his stroller. they are still looking for the gun and a motive. nick is in brunswick. police are confident they arrested the right guys. one of the suspects could have an alibi. tell us about that. >> reporter: yesterday the aunt of the elder suspect -- i use that term relatively -- he's 17 years old. the other suspect is 14 years old. his aunt spoke to a local affiliate and said they have the wrong guy and no way they got the right suspect because he was with her the whole time. >> i am devastated. i'm sad becaus
questions you have. >> thank you, mr. director. i share your concern. until congress and the obama administration, together to do something bold like the simpson- bowles commission, this will continue. domestic discretionary accounts are being squeezed. entitlements are rising. you make a powerful case against sequestration on friday, received a reprogramming a request from the eternal -- attorney general moving funds, including fbi funds to the bureau of prisons. we are going to approve that. you have had one prison guard killed. you had another commit suicide i think because of the death. how are you planning to function at reduced funding levels for this year? >> we are cutting back across the board. we have a hiring freeze. by the end of this fiscal year, we will have 2200 opened vacant positions. we delayed i.t. upgrades, which are expensive, but tremendously important. that includes putting off, picking up technology that would assist us in detecting cyber attacks. we reduced or eliminated operational training and travel across the board. that is in an effort to make certain
, president obama said recently the debt is not an immediate problem, but by huge margins, americans disagree. 68% of them disagree with the president on that. they also think he is wrong with b something else. spending. this is a fox news poll. they think his top priority should be cutting spending to reduce the deficit, not spend more, taxpayer dollars to create jobs. is that why president obama seemed to have dropped the campaign for spending realize he is pushing his job ratings down and in the process driving away potential voters? >> i think there has been a sense over the last month or so, as you point out poll numbers have gone down. white house is not going to make a big campaigns go across the country asking for tax increases but that is also because they are saving a lot of ammunition for the budget fight this summer. that is when you might see them make the requests again, any kind of grand bargain over the budget or grand bargain over the debt ceiling has to include some kind of tax increase. >> gregg: keystone pipeline passed the senate, 17 democrats sided with the republicans o
you something. how much will they get done? >> they won't get much of anything done other than the symbolism. obama will tell netanyahu unpleasant things, but you won't hear a word of it. it will be pictures of them joking around and yucking it up. it will be in their political advantage to do it. >> speaking of something you said. isn't it like mom and dad putting on a good show for the kids, but secretly they are going to get divorced? >> i don't think it was a compliment to begin with. if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift is from me. and they would say, thank you for being a friend. subtext, bring me a present, obama. in conclusion evie is greedy and blamp was a whore. >> you are saying that because you dated bea arthur in the 80s and there was a lot of strive. >> let it be. >> let it be indeed. she was quite the tumbler. she was into gym that is sticks. gymnastics. i loved bea arthur. but i wasn't crazy for maud. >>> okay. bill will discuss his book, i do the news and do it nude. first, what is a don't feed me t-shirt? something
couldn't help but notice all three of these deal with obama's second term. there's kind of an understanding for a conservative it's something they're going have to live through. so how did you go about acquiring these books in such a short period of time? you weren't aware of who would inthe election. >> that's a terrific question. we struggled and talk abouted a lot in the second half of last year. it's something that all current events publishers have to deal with, but particularly for -- we focus on only conservative political books, that's our niche and we know every four years it's going an interesting challenge to try to publish in to the beginning of a new presidential term. especially when you don't know. you never do when it's going the incumbent or someone new. in cases it's going someone new no what matter what. we tried to sign up books that were very practical, and talking about what people needed to do to survive and thrive. kind of no matter who was in charge. then we knew that one the election was over, we would pivot one way or the other in the positioni
, and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. >> president obama's four-day trip included stops in israel, ramallah, and jordan. he is scheduled to land at andrews just before 8:30 tonight pacific time. >>> today there's still genuine disagreement among well meaning people about what steps we should take to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in this country but you the american people have spoken. >> in this morning's weekly address he discussed lawmakers currently working on gun control legislation in the wake of the newtown school shootings last december. bills include reinstating and strengthening a ban on military- style assault weapons and legislation making it harder for people with severe mental illness from obtaining guns. jute it has been three months since the school shooting but for the families of the 20 first graders killed the pain is still as fresh as the date happened. recently the father of six-year- old victim emhe lee parker sat down with the father of the shooter, adam lanza. >> i wanted to speak to him as a father, one father
a trailer set up, and netanyahi and obama went in and the call was made. and we were all wondering-- it took something like half an hour. and we wondered why so long, why was the president there, why did he get on the phone. what we're told is both netanyahu and erdjuan required the president to be there, for each one that gave that leader cover to do this sort of forced public. erdogan could say president obama has explained that it's very, very important for to us at least cooperate on security intelligence. i need to do this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the president got to jordan, he and king abdullah held a joint press conference, news conference, and the the president announced there he is going to be asking congress for more money to go to jordan, to help them deal with all the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important
forces passengers to check their bags, something that costs them money at american airlines. this experiment is taking place at four airports. we'll see how it goes. >> a lot more to bring you. a quiet gesture. president obama's tour of the middle east and may be the most symbolic moment of the trip. the archbishop on gay marriage, what he fears will happen if justices rule in favor of same-sex couples. and nimble as a cat, technology that apple may be protecting your eye >> dan: after all the public events and speeches it was a quiet gesture in a jerusalem cemetery that may have defined his visit to middle east. president put a stone down from m king kick washington memorial on the grave of isak rabin saying it's harder to embark on peace. he arrived in jordan this morning. the president was greeted by jordan's king abdullah at the royal palace. they got down to business. during a news conference, he said he is worried about syria's future once president assad leaves office. >> i'm very concerned becoming an enclave for extremists because they thrive in chaos. >> dan: durin
, get something done handle things.to president obama says he wants to move away from this. a lot ofms to be agreement in congress, but we are not there yet. we have a debt ceiling. while they passed to budgets, they still have not gone to the whole process. we could continue with these stop-measures to keep the government from shutting down until eight -- an agreement is made. , go ahead.ssee caller: i would like her to define the word "politico." americanught government for the past 19 years and we are not governed by parties. we do not covered by the constitution. example which one is not mentioned in the constitution. if madison and hamilton thought it was important and washington thought it was important, it would have been in there. resolutions are non- binding. all it does is increase the burden of debt of my students who are now in debt probably $50,000 already. they have not graduated from high school already. households are in debt to the tune of $150,000 -- host: you have given us a lot to work with. what level do you teach? caller: high school. 12th graders? caller: yes, si
. republicans seem to think this was something that the president miscalculated on and the economy will be absorb it. >> i think there's been miscalculations on both sides. ultimately republicans miscalculated to the extent they thought that president obama would be attacked for this, people would read this as obama mishandling the economy as opposed to republicans not being reasonable. democrats miscalculated the short term impact but long-term we will see job layoffs and furlough. >> we're starting to see it this week. friday the furlough notices went out. some of these are furloughs, not layoffs and there's a difference but if you're furloughed you're not buying a new truck this summer. >> if your hours are cut from 40 to 30 hours a weekt stops from you spending, it will have a long-term impact on the private sector. that's the concern and you'll see that maybe not in three weeks but certainly in three months. that's where you'll begin to see -- >> the question is a matter of when. when creditors come calling sooner or later. do you put your house in order before they make the c

supervision for all their new security activities. that is something glass-steagall didn't even do for the banking industry. peter emphasizes as the obama administration has as well that the 1999 legislation enabled banks during the recent recession to play a major role in taking up and taking on the failing nonbanks and to ensure that the more important functions continue to operate in an uninterrupted fashion. i do however believe that i take issue with peter wallison's paper on the 2009 stress test mandated by treasury and administered by bank regulators. peter correctly demonstrates the stress tests were very rigorous, plenty rigorous. they assumed the obama administration's recovery program would fail. that was not only going to fail but make things far worse which is curious given the entity that created those stress tests was the treasury department given the task of promoting and carrying out the president's recovery program. it is not the rigor of the test that i question but rather in the necessity. peter accepts the treasury assumption that they were needed in order to r
neither. but it is something that caught the eye of thousands. good morning, everyone and welcome to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a
. >> the senate has passed a budget. >> senators pull an all-nighter on capitol hill to pull off something they have not done in years, but was it more show than substance? >>> also, his final day in the middle east and president obama goes back in time, biblical times. >>> and with congress poised for its first fight over gun it is, the white house prepares to ramp up the pressure. i will talk to a connecticut congressman. >>> first, topping political headlines, the senate passed a budget for the first time in four years. like the student these once were, they pull and all-nighter and wrapped up voting around 5 a.m. now, they head off on spring break for two weeks. but all is not necessarily well in the democratic dorm room there were four democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to st
the great united states of america from becoming greece or spain or perhaps something worse. the sky is falling. we also, on this committee, subcommittee, had a hearing that was entitled the obama administration regulatory war on the economy. very ominous. the sky apparently is falling, notwithstanding the fact that the administration has created about 6 million private sector jobs. today, there is a thing advanced by some, again, not questioning the views of many good faith members, but the theme is that criminals have been unleashed on the american public. the question that has been posed is, is this policy or politics? parenthetically that i believe in my reading of the 22nd amendment, barack obama is constitutionally prohibited from running for office again because he was elected and reelected. i'm not sure how politics could make their way into this discussion from the electoral context. putting that aside, the issue of whether criminals have recklessly been unleashed on the american public is an interesting one. i have about 2220 people who are at issue in terms of their releas
apologizing saying they misused the money. >> clayton: and they screwed something else up, they have next generation uniforms in an original "star trek" set. come on. >> alisyn: let's go over to the guys. >> clayton: well, the obama administration recently released more than 2000 illegal immigrants from detention centers blaming cuts from the sequester, but what might be more disturbing is the cases that they aren't letting go. one in particular, a family from germany that could be deported over home schooling their children. >> jesse: joining us now is michael ferris chairman of the home school association who is representing that family. okay, mr. ferris, who do you blame for this mix-up? it seems we're letting illegal aliens go with dui convictions and the people we should be letting stay here we're trying to deport, it doesn't make sense. >> it doesn't make sense. eric holder, the attorney general is responsible for this policy and this particular decision. and if you do the legal analysis, it just is wrong. religious freedom is supposed to be a basis for granting political asylum, wh
